Sorry, wrong terminology. No, not mount the CD but refusing to read i.e the
disc is spinning to infinity. All other apps are reading the CD such as grip
and gcd and other cdplayers.
I have a solution - that is burn to .wav using grip and this will work, but I
am totally baffled as to why xcdroast will not read. Having said all of this
I have yet to try and burn the files and maybe even creating .wav files with
grip I may yet encounter another problem with xcdroast in burning.
It seems to me there is a file permission problem but where?
